Katy’s desk is finished!

After looking at all the ready-made desks it looked like I had two choices: a cheap piece of junk or spend several hundred dollars. Neither really appealed to me. So I went to the old standby of unfinished furniture. Then came home and finished it!

What we started with.
Katy gets her first lesson in sanding and staining
The finished product

Not bad for an amateur! We didn’t spring for a chair, though. She’ll have to use the folding card-table kind. I think it’s going to work great for her.

  1. Very nice, Leigh Ann! I always thought finishing wood items was fun. My typical personality, maybe. Take next to nothing and turn it into something. Like the color you chose. Bravo!

  2. I think it's fun, too, I just hate that the garage is so hot. I don't know if I'd want to tackle anything big like a dresser or china cabinet, though. I think I'd just pay the unfinished store people to do that.
